Hi, the fist thing i would look for is rear brake (locking of brake pad / shoes). the transmission filler is the same as a car. look for a bolt 2 thirds down the gearbox face. it may be marked. if not check to see if a bolt / allen key on its own not fixing anything. i do'nt know much about bikes but a visual check can sometimes reap rewards gerry

    Pull the side of the transmission off [the cover] and inspect the clutch plates. If it is an older bike, I recommend replacing the plates altogether. To do so, you remove the 4 or 5 brass bolts that hold the plates, along with their springs, keep the plates in the EXACT order [as a guide when putting new plates in]. Go to your dealer and get new plates.. cost is around $70 for a set. I recommend carbon fiber plates [I used them when I was racing bikes back in the day, they hold out very well].

    This may not be your problem, but it's a cheap "hail Mary" fix, should cost around $130 or less [plates, oil change]. Shouldn't take more than 20 mins to do for someone without any experiencing [yes, it is THAT easy]. DO NOT OVER TIGHTEN THE BOLTS, THEY WILL EASILY SNAP! Get a torque wrench, that's the only "special" tool you need.

    Engine and trany share the same oil .on right side of bike black oil fill cap their might be a dipstick. but look low just above the frame theirs a sight glass and 2 raised marks on engine case hi and low check with bike up on center stand if window cloudy theirs a small screw in center of glass turn the screww a few turns eather way dosen't matter its a wiper .final drive (ie) real wheel hub gear lube is checked at large plug the size of a half dollar should be to bottom of threds the next thing witch is probably the the cause is rear break not relaxing calaper full of sludge or flexable break line colapsing inside dosn't have to leak to be bad.

Honda GL 1200 Aspencade Gold Wing Motorcycle Where is the vin number on the 1200 1984 aspencade goldwing


I am TOLD that: Most motorcycle have the vin number on the steering head (that is located behind the headlight or fairing. If it has a fairing it will be hard to see. If the frame is the original there should be a sticker or tag located there on one side with the numbers on it and stamped on the frame on the other side. All HONDA goldwings model are located there..
I can't vouch for this being true on the Goldwing, but it sounds convincing

The pihnch rollers are not engaging on the cassette player. Take it apart and there may be some debris stuck in the mech causing it to not fully engage. also suggest replacing the belts while you have it apart.

Removing engine on Goldwing


Your local Honda dealer might have a friendly mechanic to give you advice, either way you will need a hoist and a couple of small trolly jacks to shift the weight from mounting to mounting to avoid straining plates and fixings. Good Luck! PS There are several sites that offer free downloads of workshop manuals, trawl through these first, - The Yeti
